The Body by Stephen King

The story takes place during the summer of 1960 in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine. After a boy from a neighbouring town named Ray Brower went missing and is presumed dead, Gordie Lachance and his three friends, Chris Chambers, Teddy Duchamp and Vern Tessio set out to find his body after telling their parents they will be camping out. During the course of their journey, the boys, who all come from abusive, dysfunctional families, come to grips with some of the harsh truths of growing up in a small factory town that does not seem to offer them much in the way of a future.
